Vertigo?

Hi,
wonderful opportunity.
Right in front of the company, a lifting platform went into operation.
And, even more special, it takes passengers, so: Size the day!

Not long considered and I enter the small plattform and then, it rises…..  Ay, that went high:

Kran von unten Hoehe Von oben

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Beautiful round about sight!  🙂

 

 

 

 

So, mission accomplished: No vertigo!  😉

Outfit

At the moment, my bike is still at general service and inspection.

To shorten the waiting I have ordered some nice gear for my next ride:

Motorpool HoseFirst, an SeeSee Motorpool pant,

because I really like the style and cut,

It comes with perfectly integrated protectors on knee an hip, and, as I am not so slim as the model on this picture, but the leg lenght should fit perfect.

😉

And, if it is still a bit short, there is

another fine piece of gear :

ElsinoreBootBlackFront  the Icon 1000, Elsinor Boots. 🙂

Cant wait, to see them arrive!!

Second Prolog Day

The long evening at the big tent does effect our sleeping routine, so we did get up rather late.
ReifenrepAs Juniors front wheel still looses some pressure, we decide to change the tube completely. Not an easy task, considering the everywhere dust . And, having the tools already laid out, I did dismount the left front fork, to repair the lower gasket, as it was leaking.

In this environment a horror, but still, a necessary task.

2015-06-06_11-21-10_314To move out of the increasing heat (approx 30° C), we did decide to relocate down to Eisenerz, to get some “real” food for lunch.

We spot the Bräustüberl, and after spending there some time in the shadow, we really can recommend the food there.
After Lunch, we did a little nap, but short after, 2015-06-06_14-35-33_272we prepared our selves for the second prolog race.

As always, queueing at the prestart area. But, only 1 1/2 hours later (in complete harness), the race starts for us.

The track, now even more worse, was really hard to tackle.
As I did want to keep my 5th place from the first race, I kept a higher pace right from the start.

2015-06-06_16-01-56_28 smallUnfortunately, a flat front tire, at approx. half of the track, didn’t help.

Even worse, high speed is now only medium to slow speed. And so, I loose more than 2 Minutes on the track.

In sum, I shift down to the 6th place, unlucky, but not to bad, as the first 4 woman riders are all Pro’s.

So, I really can be satisfied with the result, can I? …  –  honestly, I am not  😉

After a very slow return to the tent, tube fix again
as it seems, i would be a really good mechanic too. 😉

First Prolog Day

2015-06-05_14-43-29_173 We both manged to get to the top (of the mountain) in one piece and in relatively good time.

The track had been worsened significantly, in respect to last year…  brrr.

Not a problem for the pros’s, but for us amateurs  :-/

Others were not so lucky:

Erzberg Prolog Strecke
Here are my statistics for this race

It’s not completely correct as I started tracking after last technical check in prestart, and approx. a minute? after arriving at the finish.

Established

We did arrive today, early in the morning, but still most of the good sites were already gone.

We found a niche at one of the dead ends, meaning, less dust from passing vehicles – most of them Enduros in training Speed  :-/

2015-06-06_10-57-10_647It wasn’t easy to fix the sun sail. only a sharp, but massive, screwdriver was able to penetrate the hardened soil.

but, finally the Tent and the Sail were up.

luckily we had one of our famous AUT riders close by.

Ossi Reisinger!
He has no Team, no Crew, no mechanic tent, no Catering as the big Factory Teams do ahve. Only freinds and his father……

2015-06-04_21-52-49_364in the evening there was the Rider Briefing for the first prolog race at the main tent, as well as, the winner ceremony for the Rocket Ride.

And the Winner is: Ossi Reisinger! 🙂

Pro? Go!

Time for a action cam upgrade,

my GoPro 2 is getting old and the relatively new Rollei, proved to be a bad buy.

So, I invested my last gift coupons for a new one.

It’s a brand new goPro Hero 4 black. First tests in the dusk show a much improved picture. 🙂  Thats my baby:
